DON MEREDITH The evening seemed like any other to Mrs. Bentz. She could hear children at play, the familiar sound of traffic and the occasional bark of a dog. Suddenly there came a knock on the door. Mrs. Bentz walked to the door and opened it; "Trick or treat" was the cry. She laughed and gave each child a piece of candy, "Such cute costumes you have" she told the four children. Mrs. Bentz flashed a warm smile and said, "Good choices: a firefighter, a police officer, and a paramedic, too."

Alecia Foster NORTHWEST GLENDALE -- Like many other children on Halloween, Keppel Elementary School second-graders will be off to trick-or-treat shortly after sundown. But it won't be candy the students will be seeking. Instead, the second-graders will be asking for donations to the American Red Cross Disaster Relief Fund. "We want to help all of the kids that lost their parents and family," said student Jack Zierhut. Several of the students' classmates agreed and said they wanted to do more to help those affected by the terrorist attacks.

Make sure you're visible, take your parents and watch out for traffic hazards, police advise.Halloween, in all its spookiness, is really a lot more fun when it's safe. That's what local law enforcement and firefighters are saying, as they encourage residents and children to keep their eyes and ears open while celebrating the holiday. For neighborhood trick-or-treaters, the key to a safe candy-gathering evening is watching out for potential traffic hazards, Glendale Police Lt. Carl Povilaitis said.

With Halloween just three days away, many residents are preparing for the holiday by buying costumes, decorations and bags of candy. And other residents are thinking about being safe on Halloween. Glendale resident Arlet Malekian is throwing a birthday bash for her 8-year-old daughter Talia instead of taking her trick-or-treating because she said it is safer. “All of her friends are going to celebrate her birthday at our house for Halloween,” she said. Malekian believes hosting the Halloween party at her home will give her daughter and friends the opportunity to celebrate two special occasions without running the risk of getting hurt on the streets.

The Falcons did everything through the air, even running a trick play. But, unfortunately, a straightforward ground game was all the Golden Knights needed to beat Crescenta Valley, as St, Francis defeated the Falcons, 27-13, at Glendale’s Moyse Field on Friday night. “There’s more where that (trick) play came from,” said Falcons head coach Tony Zarrillo. “It’s an offense that is conducive to trick plays. There will be more tricks along the way.” Zarrillo was referring to the fourth quarter touchdown pass from his quarterback, Karsen Reedy, to Mike Bako.

Some slight rain early Saturday morning didn't prevent about 40 local and area skateboarders from participating in the amateur skating competition at Glendale's Orange Street Skate Park. Skateboarders competed in four age groups -- 10 and younger, 11 to 13, 14 to 17, and 18 and older. Awards such as skateboards, T-shirts and hats were given for first, second and third place and best skateboard trick. Local skate shops donated the prizes, officials said.

Patricia A. Garner This is in response to Bill Lauritzen's commentary "Most students can't identify nouns" published Nov. 9. Lauritzen describes students as unable to identify nouns by using the example of holding a pencil in his hand and asking if it is a noun. He expects students to say no, because he is not holding a "noun" in his hand. I do not argue with the reasoning he expects from his students, but I do argue with his statement that "It is not a trick question."

Mark Humphrey A dozen youngsters in elbow, knee and shoulder pads took advantage of the heavy protection to slide into a pool at the Glendale Skate Park without injury to hear skate instructor Jose Cabias give a lesson on pumping. "You want to make sure you put your front foot higher up," Cabias said, as he instructed campers how to continuously go up and down a pool or half pipe. Pumping is one of the many tricks taught at Verdugo Park's Glendale Skate Camp, but not all campers learn the same tricks at the same time.
